Sexual misconduct allegations aren’t Charlie Rose’s only problems.

According to the Blast, the disgraced anchor “fell ill and required major surgery” in July.

His condition was revealed in papers that Rose’s attorneys filed asking for an extension on his response to a lawsuit, which claims that he sexually harassed colleagues.

The extension filing says that Rose underwent abdominal surgery July 17 and needs six weeks to recover.

In the suit, three women claim they were subjected to physical and verbal sexual harassment by Rose.
